Check Dam in Thirunellai River

A new check dam is built across the Thirunellai river and is almost nearing completion. This dam is being built for serving the water authority pumping house near the Thirunellai bridge. This water will be then treated there and will be used for supplying to houses nearby.

The location of the dam is just before the Padikadavu. The water will be opened through the shutters in rainy season and always the excess water escapes through. The summer months is where the use of this river water for drinking purposes serves the purpose.
